Live/Wire would like to announce the departure of our good friend and drummer Paul Alwin. Paul has been an integral and much valued member of the band for the last six years, but – with regret and after much agonising – he has had to bow out due to other demands and commitments. It hasn’t been an easy decision for Paul but we respect his reasons for leaving. He has worked tirelessly during his time in the band and always gave 100% off stage and on, where his power and energy drove the L/Wire rhythm section through hundreds of great shows across the UK and Europe. We wish him and his family all the best for the future.
Paul has insisted that we keep on rocking, and so we will Paul; taking over the sticks is our friend James Last who has stood in for Paul a few times over the years. We’d now like to welcome him back to the drum stool as the new full time drummer for Live Wire.
All the best Paul, and welcome aboard James!
Simon. Podge, Ed, Dan and the crew.
